Dear Ms. Young:
Thank you for contacting me about H.R. 1246, the Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2007. I appreciate hearing from you on this particular piece of legislation.
As you may know, H.R. 1246 would repeal current Department of Defense (DOD) policy concerning homosexuality in the Armed Forces. It was introduced in the House on February 28, 2007, and referred to the House Committee on Armed Services. I will keep your comments in mind should this or related legislation come before the full Senate for a vote.
To keep track of what I am doing both in Washington and in Minnesota, please visit my website at http://www.klobuchar.senate.gov. You may also like to track legislation through the Library of Congress legislative information website at http://thomas.loc.gov.
Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me. Please do not hesitate to contact me again about this or other matters of importance to you.
United States Senator
This should be an easy one for Amy Klobuchar.
Klobuchar did send me a fundraising email about Earth Day 5 days ago. I sent her campaign an irritated response:
Why should I contribute to a Senator who never writes back when I write about legislative issues?
It's amazing that Klobuchar's campaign has the nerve to ask me for money.
